It's a little bit like living in a reality where time doesn't exist, all you eat is turkey sandwiches and Quality Street and you have no idea whether it's a Wednesday or and Sunday. And it definitely doesn't help that all the regular opening times and services for supermarkets and bin collections are a bit higgledy-piggledy. So to help you all out, we've collated a round-up of all the bin collection dates for Glasgow City Council and opening times for all the major supermarket chains in Glasgow over the festive period. Bin Collections Blue Bins Green and Brown Bin Purple Bin Wednesday December 25 changed to Friday December 27 Thursday December 26 changed to Saturday December 28 Wednesday January 1 changed to Friday January 3 Thursday January 2 changed to Saturday January 4 For anyone with bulk excess waste, Glasgow's recycling centres will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day and close at 6pm (last entry at 5.45pm) on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. And in respect of disposing of real Christmas trees, the trees can be cut up in to manageable pieces and placed in the brown bin for kerbside collection.
Alternatively, trees can be taken to any of the council household waste recycling centres or to any of the following locations from January 3 to January 19: Pollok Country Park, Burrell Car Park, Alexandra Park, off Alexandra Parade, car park next to the golf course. Kelvingrove Park, Kelvin Way, grass area opposite the bandstand. For more info, click here.
